1964, Uwe Ommer, a young 20-year-old photographer who recently arrived from Cologne, lives in a small room on Boulevard St-Marcel. Every weekend, he goes to the market on rue Mouffetard to photograph the inhabitants on the fly. These rare images are the testimony of a Paris that has now disappeared and that of one of its emblematic districts.
